    Pros

    The earning potential can be uncapped, benefits are great.

    Cons

    This position is a virtual sales position with little to no support from management. If you're looking for a job where you will spend more time on the phone dialing into the help desk or on useless conference calls, this job is for you. You won't receive a laptop, printer and office setup until at least 6 weeks into the job. You will have about 20 different passwords for systems that do not integrate. Formal training happens anywhere from 3-5 months on the job. Working at GCP is like being on a runaway train, departments do not communicate. Example: the underwriting department needs 14-25 days to review financials to provide a line of credit. Account setup teams refuse to communicate necessary information to aid setup. The result is a constant pressure on the salesman to continually be in contact with the client and obtain information, information that the Amex corporate office has but will not share.

    Advice to Management

    Before you bring out a new product or promotion like Corporate Membership Rewards, understand what it will do to the customer service infrastructure. Communicate a policy and stick to it, the consistent back and forth is exhausting. Above all else, don't hire an Director with less than 3 years of MBD experience. The VP of the region actually told me tounge and cheek, "the longer you stay around here the more you'll realize I don't have a clue what's going on." What an awkward but true moment of candor. It sums up my entire experience at Amex.
